Cooking for 12 people



  • 0.25 cup olive oil
  • 0.25 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tsp. harissa paste, if desired, for heat
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 0.25 tsp. cinnamon
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste


  • 1.5 lb. boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 12 wooden skewers, soaked for at least 20 minutes in water
  • 9 dates, pitted and halved
  • 1 red onion, cut into large dice (you want about 36 pieces total)
  • pomegranate molasses, for drizzling
  • chopped cilantro or fresh mint, for garnish

1 Food Prep

For your marinade, mix together your marinade ingredients in a bowl.

Add your marinade and lamb cubes to a resealable plastic bag and toss to coat evenly. Seal the bag and let your lamb marinate for at least 1–2 hours in the refrigerator. These are strong flavors so it’s best not to leave them overnight.

If you’re using bamboo skewers, you’ll want to soak them in warm water for at least 1 hour beforehand.

Remove the lamb from the marinade and thread it onto skewers — start with your lamb, followed by half of a date and a chunk of red onion. Repeat two more times and end with a piece of lamb.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 450°F (High Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your lamb kabobs on the grate directly over the coals and cook for about 8–10 minutes total,turning often, until the lamb is cooked through and the onions are slightly softened and charred.

  • Remove your kabobs from the grill and drizzle with pomegranate molasses. Garnish with chopped cilantro or mint and serve immediately. Enjoy!
